Wilson Center Project(s):
"Protection of Whistleblowers and Education Programs as Strong Guarantees for Transparent Government."

Project Summary

Protection of "whistleblowers" is one of the main guarantees of open government. Ukraine needs special educational law programs that would help convince students that the freedom of information is one of the main constitutional values. Studying, in the US, the function and practice of laws about open government, "whistblower" protection, and the methodologies for teaching law students, will allow me to create similar academic courses and special training programs for Ukrainian lawyers and convince Ukrainian authorities to adopt legislation on protection of whistleblowers.
